How true is this?

I am about 14 weeks pregnant? I am excited, I was told today that boys HR is 130-140 and for a girl it is 150? How accurate and true is this? My babys HR is 150!

  • They say a girl's Heartrate is slightly higher... U can find out the sex at 16 weeks, but are you waiting on ur 20 wk ultrasound? Wal-greens also has a test in which u can use right now. I used it with my last baby(number 5) and it was dead on... Her heart rate was also higher than any of the boyz...

  • My Dr said generally a girl's heart rate is slightly faster, but as in my case, it isn't a true indicator. Heart rates can fluctuate a bit during pregnancy and each baby's is different.

  • I'm 27 weeks with number 4. With each one the hr is faster. This will be my third boy and my daughter is my second. She had the second slowest hr. I think it's just an old wives tale.
